Last Chance at Incredible Savings!

Our annual Year End Blowout Sale is almost over and tomorrow is your last chance to save on over 100 yarns, needles and more! Incredibly, the sale has been extended for two extra days and of course the yarn has taken this opportunity to tell me more things I should be making with it!

I’m still trying to focus on making some additions to my summer wardrobe so I’m looking at Noro Kibou and the Midori Pullover. That’s some fairly mindless knitting right there with gorgeous results! Just two rectangles, knit on the bias, that take advantage of the magical striping thing that Noro yarns do, and the Kibou is a mostly cotton and silk blend that makes it a wonderful summer yarn. I’ve got a mini vacation coming up in February with a couple long train rides and this may just become my travel project for that trip!

And now that I’m thinking about garments I’m also thinking about how happy a good cardigan makes me and the Super Fine Merino Aran from Rowan would wonderful to work with, especially in that chestnut color. Maybe I could pair it with a stripe in the Teak or Smoke colorway for the Sawtelle Cardigan, lots of squishy, easy garter stitch! I love a versatile cardigan and I can see myself tossing this on with a pair of dress pants and an oxford or jeans and a t-shirt.

But now I’m thinking that I also want a quick and easy, instant gratification project for myself, especially considering all the projects I just finished up for everyone else over the holidays, and how many I’ve planned already for this year. So, I’m going to pick up a couple skeins of Icicle Chunky and knit up a bright, white, wintery and quick cowl to wear on that trip I’m taking next month! This isn’t a yarn that would normally call my name but it is unbelievably soft and will certainly keep out the chill winter wind. Good thing the Colonial dpns are on sale, I don’t have anything in my stash big enough to knit this one!

With over 100 items in this years sale it’s hard not to find the perfect yarns to add to your stash or to cast on with right now! I’m already dreaming of summer projects, hoping I can get a few finished in time to wear them this year!

Rowan Summerlite DK is a beautifully soft, 100% cotton, DK weight yarn that has me dreaming about a cute cropped cardi for me and maybe one for my niece.

Jil Eaton CottonTail is another 100% cotton yarn, this time in a cable plied, worsted weight, and it might just be perfect for a lacey, summer poncho in a bright pop of color.

Cascade Yarns Sateen Worsted keeps calling my name and telling me that it wants me to make a blanket. I walk past this yarn almost every day and I keep seeing new color combinations and they start spinning in my head like a kaleidoscope, and then I’m wondering should I knit or crochet? Since I’m planning to use this yarn over the winter I think I might knit a blanket since I don’t need to worry about being bundled up under it as it grows, that’s kind of the point isn’t it? Now, do I go with simple stripes, log cabin, or something even more colorful?

And if I didn’t already own a set of Addi Click needles I’d be getting one because they’re at a great price!

That’s my plan for now. 3 yarns, 4 projects, though I still need to make a decision or two on what those will be, and I’ll have 2 tops, a gift and a new blanket for summer. That is if I don’t walk by another yarn that starts calling my name!

What are your plans for your Year End Blowout Sale purchases, or are you stashing for a rainy day?

And don’t forget that if you’re within driving distance you should stop by our retail store for deals that you won’t find online! You’ll find directions here.

This week I thought I’d share some of my favorite yarns from the Anniversary Sale this year. I knit and crochet but these yarns are versatile enough to be perfect for both and they all make great stash yarns for future, unknown projects!

I love a good one skein project and Frosted Leaves from Louisa harding is just that! A simple, repeating leaf motif with a garter stitch border that shows off the stunning self-striping colors of Amitola Grande, this pattern is one I keep in the last minute gifts folder. Not only is it a free pattern but the yarn is a heavy worsted weight and one skein completes the project. During the sale that means this whole project only costs you $17.49! Amitola Grande is a single ply yarn with a blend of 80% wool and 20% silk, you get warm fluffyness from the wool and strength and shine from the silk, and there are some gorgeous colorways here.

I’ve made several projects with yarns from Mrs. Crosby and Train Case is one of the best.  A blend of  superwash merino, nylon and Outlast – that futuristic rayon fiber technology that continuously interacts with your body to moderate your temperature and keep you from being too hot or too cold. The future is here! not only that but it’s machine washable. The hand dyed colors of this yarn are just stunning and sometimes you really need to just let them take center stage. And sometimes you need a project that has lots of visual interest when finished but doesn’t take a lot of brain power in the making, I can’t keep track of a complicated project and pay attention at my daughter’s softball game! The Color Affection Shawl is just the right fit, lots of easy-peasy garter stitch and simple stripes to keep you going without too much effort, and the result is a stunning shawl!

The Jo Sharp yarns are just some of the classiest yarns I have in my stash. Silk Road DK Tweed is an incredible blend of 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5%cashmere in earthy, organic tones with pops of tweedy color. The two-ply structure and fiber blend knit up into a fabric with a beautiful hand and great drape but it still has a good amount of body. I love this yarn for garments. I am also a big fan of versatile patterns and the Wide Collar Vest and Cardigan pattern is just that. Take your pick of a cropped cardigan or a longer vest, both with generous lapels. The vest seems like the kind of layering piece that I would wear a lot! Loose and casual with a tshirt and jeans around the house, or more tailored and belted with dress pants and a button down shirt for the office.

Finally, Berroco Ultra Alpaca is one of the first yarns that I stashed and I keep finding ways to use it, it’s just that good. With over 40 incredible colors, in soft heathered solids from striking jewel tones to classic neutrals, there’s color for almost every project you can imaging.  The Avocet B sweater, a free PDF, is one that’s been in my queue for a long time and this might just be the right time to cast on. An incredible comfy cardigan in all-over garter stitch, I might just live in this one!

So there you have 4 of my favorite yarns from the May portion of our Anniversary Sale. What are some of your favorites and what plans are you hatching for them?

Anniversary Spotlight: Color and Texture

Our Anniversary Sale isn’t just for knitters looking to stock up on stash-building workhorse yarns! Each year we have quite a selection of unique yarns that are perfect for garments and accessories with incredible texture and color, and these yarns are often an excellent addition to the weavers stash.

Tempo from Filatura Di Crosa works up into wide stripes of color, but these stripes are no plain-jane solid colors! The yarn is made from 3 plys, one is a two-ply, multicolored print with nubby tweedy bits, wrapped with two different colored thick-thin plys that gradually change color. While that seems like a lot happening in one yarn it results in a muted blending of colors that give your knits a sophisticated yet rustic quality. And, it’s a cotton blend so it’s perfect for warmer weather! Working with 2 colors of Tempo, and creating wedges with short rows, the Boticelli Top is an interesting but not overly complicated pullover to knit. Interchangeable front and back are seamed at the sides and shoulders for a reversible top that is eye catching and comfortable.

Another great cotton yarn for summer is Schachenmayr Tahiti. This fingering weight yarn has beautiful color shifts in variegated shades and it’s totally machine washable! Just 4 balls of this yarn knit into the gorgeous Sundowner Shawl. The pattern is FREE and you can choose from two sizes. This yarn would also make a beautiful warp yarn for a shawl or scarf with a gradient effect!

With subtle, tonal colors and a shifting series of fibers, the chainette or woven tape-like construction of Classic Elite Yarns Sanibel lends textural interest to even the simplest stockinette pieces. The Lady Londonderry capelet is a lovely layering piece for when it’s not quite warm enough to wear your favorite summer dresses but you just can’t wait! Worked from the bottom up in a classic feather and fan stitch, this little piece features a wide rib neckline and a button closure for a fun retro look.

Also from Classic Elite is Santorini, the same base yarn as Sanibel but in a cheerful array of variegated colors. Put the two together for fun accessories with tons of colorful drama. Nonamesset scarf does just that with modular knit triangles that are joined as you go!

Anniversary Sale Spotlight – Bulky Yarns

May is a great time to stock up on yarns for future holiday gifts. I know, I know! It’s not even summer yet and I’m raising the spectre of holiday knitting. Some of you will think I’m crazy but I actually like to get lots of quick and easy projects done in the summertime to fill the “bin of potential gifts”. This is a little storage bin where I place finished knit and crochet items that don’t have a particular recipient yet, maybe one of my girls’ teachers, or my husband’s boss, or the secret snowflake exchange at work. I get lots of little things done over the summer and then I always have an extra gift or two come holiday time! This year I am particularly enamoured of bulky and chunky yarns, and there are SO many great ones to choose from in the May portion of our Anniversary Sale!

Anniversary Sale yarns and quick summer gift knits on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

Encore Mega, is a super versatile yarn  in 25 colors that is perfect for the person in your life who needs an easy care gift. With a blend of 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool you don’t have to worry about them felting that special gift! The Lodge Pole Cowl is not only a quick, yet interesting pattern, but it’s Free! Double strand your yarn for a super squishy and cozy cowl, keep it all in one color or use 2 colors for a marled look, and the 4 skeins of Encore Mega that you need will only cost $16.76 during the sale!

A yarn with fantastic texture and beautiful colors is Bamboo Bloom Handpaints. This blend of bamboo based Rayon, Wool, and Acrylic has a thick and thin texture with large slubs of fluffy wool and sections of tightly spun rayon with incredible shine. Finished knits have amazing texture, like the Corners Scarf, another FREE pattern. At less than $8 per hank for Bamboo Bloom Handpaints during the sale, you could make a whole pile of these one skein scarves and still have plenty of cash left in your holiday budget!

Another yarn with great texture is Rosa from Tahki Yarns. This 100% Cotton yarn is fantastic for summertime garments and accessories. Right now I’m kind of crushing on the Textures Cardigan by Rosemary Drysdale. My daughter loves a good summer dress and would happily wear them in December, so a little cotton cardi is perfect for letting her fashion sense rule while making me feel better about her staying warm! With Rosa being a bulky yarn this sweater will knit up super quick, and during the sale it costs less than I would have paid for one at her favorite department store.

So what do you have planned for your “bin of potential gifts”? Give some of these great bulky yarns a try and help to fill it up over the summer!
